Mr. and Mrs. Skull Cameo - Free Printable!

I'm pretty excited about my new friends. Don't they look great? All dressed to the nines and ready for Halloween. They are probably my favorite part of my currently evolving Halloween vignette, and they were really easy to put together. 

Want Mr. and Mrs. Skull to join your Halloween party? Here's what to do:
  1. Download the free printables (here and here).
  2. Make your prints extra special with a little gold leaf (see how below).
  3. Frame and hang!
These skulls were inspired by these cool kids from Peppermint Plum. Their version uses a cute orange grosgrain ribbon, but I decided a pop of gold would go better with my black and white theme. 

I made Mr. and Mrs. Skull using Totenkopf dingbat font and this bow clip art. After printing them out on cardstock, I gilded the bows. You can read more about this process here, but basically, you apply the adhesive, let it sit and get tacky, apply the metal leaf, and brush off the excess. Not too tricky.

I had some great oval frames that weren't currently being used, but Mr. and Mrs. Skull remedied that situation right away. 

Looking good, guys. 

If you don't feel up to gilding your bows, I think they would look pretty good in all black too. Download by clicking on the images below. Enjoy!
